How Much Time Does Your Child Spend Online?

A quick Google search on the topic of screen time will throw up plenty of answers to the question "How much Time do Children Spend Online?". The answer - too much. The numbers range from several hours a day to "if they are awake they are online". How much time should your child be online? That's up to you. And that is the important thing. If it is up to you then you need to have a way to control it and manage it.

curbi allows you to have a conversation with your child about how much time they should spend online and then set up appropriate schedules and time limits which will encourage good habits. Generally, when encouraged to let go of the device for a while children, being naturally curious anyway, will explore other options to occupy their time. Sometimes this will be activity still on the device, but not online. You will find they will read more, do more homework, be more productive and constructive, and they will play more. Maybe, even outside.


Where Does Your Child Visit Online?

You can't be monitoring your child's online activity 24/7. We all have busy lives and let's face it, these days our kids probably know about the technology than we do! We've all heard of the dark side of the Internet and suspect that there is a lot of sites we don't want our child to see. Wouldn't it be good if you could have complete confidence that your child was protected from inappropriate or adult content? Well now you can.

curbi allows you to set up rules that pick and choose the content that your child can access on the Internet. You can block specific types of content with a single click. You can also add a specific site to the list easily should the default filtering rules not achieve what you want (but we think they will). You can set up different devices with different settings depending on you child's age.

curbi makes a note of all the sites visited by your child, whether through the device browser or through any of the many apps that may be installed and connect to the Internet. You can view this information to see where on the Internet they visit and make necessary changes to the rules if necessary. curbi is designed to allow easy, reliable content filtering based on categories of content. curbi's filter is constantly updated to include new websites so you never have to worry about it.

curbi makes the Internet safer for your child.


Is Your Child Wasting Time Online?

We all know that times are changing fast. Like it or not, being online has become a part of our daily lives, probably more so for our children than it is for us. Children are now expected to do their homework online, communicate with their teachers and classmates online, and learn how to be a productive citizen in a modern world. The problem is there are too many distractions. Games, social media like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, video sites like YouTube, and many others, all try to lure you child away from the important things they need to do. Games, fun and socialising are all great things that you can do on iOS devices, but we all want a balance and see our children succeed too. Right? Now there is a solution.

curbi allows you to restrict the amount of time that your child spends on sites and apps that waste time. Games, videos, and social networking can all be restricted at the times you specify and allowed at the times you specify. You can use curbi's monitoring features to see what your child is accessing online and for how long to help you determine what restrictions you may want to apply.

curbi is there to help you define the boundaries and give you the control.


How About You Set The Rules

curbi is the only iOS parental controls app that allows you to restrict time and content in a way that allows your child to be online for fun when you say it's time for fun and be online for work when you say it's time to work. No other app can do this. curbi provides a unique way to specify rules that restrict time and content to allow almost any type of restriction you can imagine. For example, You can:

  • Block all internet games, time wasting sites and social networking (but allow Wikipedia and Khan Academy) from 4 pm to 6 pm on week days and call it Study Time
  • Block everything from 9 pm to 8 am on weekdays and 10 pm to 8 am on weekends and call it Bed Time
  • Block everything from 6 pm to 7 pm and call it Dinner Time 
  • Do whatever you want

curbi comes with some popular rules already to go, you just have to say what goes and when it applies.

The unique time + content approach that curbi has to device control allows you to set boundaries that suit your family and your lifestyle. Importantly, it allows you to work with your child to agree on what those boundaries are. You can be as strict is you want and the curbi will not get in the way.
